The Season of Love

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The season of love.

I first learned about Valentine’s Day back in my elementary school days. Each student would decorate a large envelope or tissue box and attached it to their desk. Later, at home, you would cut and decorate heart-shaped cards and then address them to your ‘valentine’ friends in class. On Valentine’s Day, you would walk around the class and deposit your cards into the envelopes hung on each desk. Sometimes, our class would have a small party and have juice and cookies.

When I was going to elementary school (a long time ago), there weren’t any prepackaged mini candy treats. Usually only a Valentine’s Day card was given. If you were lucky, you would get a few cinnamon hearts or a heart-shaped cookie. Today, there are a multitude of Valentine’s Day gift giving options including mini versions of almost every candy you can think of, all with a built in to/from card.

Today’s Valentine’s Day gift giving still includes the classics – card, flowers and candy. Celebrating love and romance shouldn’t just be a once-a-year thing. This is something that should be celebrated all year long. It shouldn’t include just love and romance, but should also include friendship, appreciation and gratitude.

Crowsnest Candy Company has a few unique Valentine’s Day products to wow your special someones this year. Check out our Valentine’s Candy Kabobs or our Smoocher Gummy Lips. We also create Valentine’s Day packages that include a treat, some family-friendly Valentine’s humor and  a small card. We can customize these packages just for you. They are also great for any day of the year, including birthday’s, weddings, and other special events, or just to say thank-you to someone special.

Whether your gift-giving includes cards, flowers, candy or just plain spending time with someone, we hope you have a great day!
